Be careful with the little seat that fits over the toilet.... my oldest, at 12 months, when I was 8 months pregnant with number 2, put this over her head.  Then she tried to pull it off.... and had a fit about it.  There she was, kicking, screaming, trying to pull this off, but unless you calmly pull it straight up, it wont come off.  So I had to physically restrain her arms, and carry her around the house until I located a hacksaw. (not easy at 8 months preg)

Moral... take a hacksaw to your seat incase they put it over their head... then its easy to get off!!

Oh, I soooooo shouldn't be laughing at that....but I am (forgive me).  wub Ashley wears his as a hat. I shall take your advice and check tmrw to make sure he can't get it all the way over.

Never really thought about that either! Last night, my baby girl got some paper and tried to wipe me when I was on the toilet, it was really hilarious but at least I know that she knows we have to wipe after potty.

hmmm I really believe the concept behind EC is true, why learn then un-learn?! But it still seems like so much work and clean-up from accidents etc...etc...
anyone here who is following EC that can tell us about this?

Yup, I wiped up a lot of wee today! LOL

Some days he is great, we can go the whole day and he wont wee on the floor at all. Other days it's bad, like today. The reason today is that he is just learning to say 'Uh,Oh!'. So instead of coming to tell me he needed a wee (clutching at relevant bits and shouting) or wee'ing when I put him over the toilet, he was waiting, then wee'ing on the floor pointing at it and shouting 'UHOH!!!!!' Fairly cute but very annoying.

 If you are considering EC'ing it would be helpful if you weren't too squeamish about wee. I have wooden floors. I have prefold nappies in every room for mopping and anti bac spray for quick cleanups. I could choose to have him wear a nappy all the time and still EC. Many parents do this. There is no reason why you would have to leave their bums bare. but it is summer here and I like him to be barebummed. And usually it wouldnt be a problem.
 As for poo this varies a lot from child to child. I am fortunate that mine has been very good in that repect. He doesnt poo in his nappy, or on the floor, only in the toilet. I have missed it maybe twice in the last six months, and that was my own fault for not listening to him!

 So yes it may be a little more work but training a three year old not to poo in their pants can be very difficult as well. It varies so much from family to family, I think its just a case of try it ansd see if it works for you.

My grandmother tells me my mum was potty trained at nine months and she wore knickers at night but never wet the bed.  Her boys were harder to toilet train, but apparently thats usual... boys do these things later than girls.  There's a variety of potty training DVDs out there, and a heap of picture books.  If we make a big fuss about it, making it lots of fun with great reading times etc, it might be more inspiring to do it early.  Tony Ross has a picture book, I think it's "I want to go potty" about a petulant spoilt princess with an attitude problem. I just went to the library and borrowed (not from the kids section but under 306.874...must be toilet training!) 3 colourful picture books...Anna on the big toilet, and also...on your potty, little rabbit...both by Kathleen Amant.  Also "A potty for me" by karen Katz.
I'm trying to use new strategies for toilet training as I found it quite intimidating in the past, especially trying to manage that with travelling, morning sickness, and sore pelvis from pregnancy that made moving difficult, especially getting up and taking those fiirst steps.  I think it's easier to do if you stay home A LOT and focus on that issue.  It helps too if it's warm weather...having clothes off is easier... harder when all rugged up and potty in a freezing area...

 i have a friend with 2 young ones and 2 potties in loungeroom in front of TV so they can sit and sit and rhymes with sit... I'm not keen on seeing potties in public areas but it is a good way to get them to do it, sitting on potty instead of a chair... when they need to go they can just go, which cuts out the middle man... no having to rush them off to the toilet big grin it's near the heater in winter, air conditioning in summer..which makes it more pleasant.  Actually I saw a video clip of African kids (probably an orphanage  Sad) where the kids were all sitting on potties in one room and they scooted around the room on them.   (peer pressure in a good way....if everyone else is doing this I'll do it too.  Probably works for the 2 kids I mentioned...inspiring each other...)   LOL  At Azarias current age and stage I wouldnt trust her sitting on a potty... she would eat the contents.

I started training my daughter, who is now 2yrs 8 months when she was 1 yr 6 months.  At first I just got her used to the potty and what it is ment for.  I didn't stress much on actually using it as I felt that she wasn't quite ready.  A year later and Emily being older, I took the plunge and trained her into using the potty.  Since Emily already knew waht the potty was for it wasn't that daunting for her. Using positive reinforcements ( a star chart) and lots of praise, she was well trained in 1 week and on the second week she started asking me for it.  2 months have passed and actually yesterday I managed to get her to use the toilet.  Whenever I tried, she flatly refused - the trick....
We were happily playing with her lion puppet when Emily asked to use the potty.  Lion suggested she use the toilet.  I propped her up on a stepping stool and before we knew it she was happilly using the toilet.  Lots of hugs, kisses and hurrays followed together with a star on her chart.  From then on it was plain sailing - Emily was actually asking to use the toilet.
Play and positive reinforcement is the trick.
My advice to whom ever is attempting to potty train their child - don't push it.  You will know when your child is ready for such a step. 
Good Luck

Does anyone know about the ebook called "Potty Training made easy, fast & simple"? They claim that you can potty train your child in tree days. Does it really work?

My son started to sign potty at 13 months... but I thought it was too soon.... silly me if I could only go back in time.. LOL I put him on and h went potty but I didnt want to pressure him. 

Today he is a little over 2 and will poop but not pee on the potty... I have just started the elimination method with my 4 month old and he seems to be catching on we have been only doing it one week.  He pees more successfully then my 2 year old. 

I must admit I find it a little cumbersome to always be at the potty with the baby and the 2 year old... and outings make it tough, especially with the baby. 

We are currently using a sticker chart that I made from a calandar... just covered up the month with my son's name and then laminated it.  Works well for my older one.

Child and me has some good info on it if you need more

Kind Regards
